Monogram master console

Designed to make the editing process more personal, intuitive, and engaging for video and digital artists, these tactile, CNC-machined modular aluminum buttons, knobs, and sliders can be linked together in any desired configuration and programmed for virtually any editing task. Think of it as a more soulful keyboard and mouse combo, where timelines slide with a pinch and colors can be graduated with a swipe of a finger. Shown here is the master console with a core module, three dials, three orbiter modules, and two key keys, but they also sell individual components to help you build your perfect productive desktop.

KEF LS50 Wireless II

The original LS50 Wireless proved to be active streaming speakers that could deliver sound without separate components, and with the second generation, KEF has improved them significantly, not least by removing the (shaky) physical interconnect cables. The iconic Uni-Q coaxial drivers are powered by two amplifiers, 100W for the tweeter, 280W for the mid / woofer, and the addition of a round piece of plastic behind the tweeter known as Metamaterial Absorption Technology (MAT) helps with absorption unwanted sound waves. Combine all of this with high-resolution streaming (up to 24 bit / 96 kHz), a greatly improved KEF app, Amazon Music, Qobuz, Deezer and Spotify integration as well as AirPlay 2, Chromecast, Roon and Bluetooth and you are guaranteed to get musical goose bumps.
